I went “real” camping (as the manfriend said) for the first time this weekend.Our place of choice? Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire. I went camping before a very long time ago; probably over 10 years ago. The campsite in Monadnock was simply beautiful.There were very few people and it was nice to enjoy the peace and quiet. And enjoy a nice fire. Dinner was made by the manfriend over the fire “tin-foil style;” chicken, peppers, green beans, broccoli and potatoes. It was beyond delicious!It did rain a bit but it made it less scary for me. I had never been in such darkness or quietness. I think a few more times and I’ll get use to it. It was a great way to celebrate the beginning of Fall, my favorite season.
In the morning we walked around and explored a bit.Found a random yellow mushroom along the way. I made a quick breakfast over the fire. I melted a thinkThin brownie crunch with a smidge if water and added some peanut butter and topped it with blueberries after. Yum! After we packed and left the campsite, I was in need a coffee. Alas, Green Monntain Coffee. I mixed Southern Pecan and Vanilla Caramel. So, so good!
I definitely can’t wait to go camping again. Maybe even some hiking in the near future.
Question: Have you ever been camping? How did you celebrate the first “official” day of Fall?
